Open diamonds border. A supple closed weave is bordered by several wide rows of open diamonds, about 1"x.5" each. Most of the scarf is done in a drapey, filled-in weave, and the yarn is 2-ply*. Visualize the graphic rotated 90 degrees; the border runs horizontally.

We found a small village on the island of Java in Indonesia where the men handweave these cotton scarves and shawls on handmade wooden looms. The intricate openwork patterns have been handed down through the generations, father to son. The natural cotton thread is purchased in big "hanks" and wound onto spools using old bicycle rims. The loom is then "dressed" which is very time consuming. The weaving itself then goes relatively quickly. We are getting them in 11 patterns, each in 4 sizes. Being completely handmade, the charm is in the irregularities and the sizes are approximate. They can be dyed and tie-dyed with our Fiber Reactive dyes into any of 100 colors. Because of how long they take to make and get here, we can't be sure they will always be in stock, so get 'em while we got 'em.

*There are two types of cotton yarn used in these scarves,
1) "Singles" yarn, meaning single-ply yarn, is used in scarf styles 2, 7 and 9.
2) The other scarves are woven with a fine 2-ply yarn.

Due to the handmade nature of this item all sizes are approximate.
Shrinkage: Expect approximately 10% shrinkage in both directions, with hand washing and line drying. Keep them away from your washer and dryer.
Each size has an additional 2-4 inch "loose" fringe on the two ends.

These shawls are great and take dye nicely as long as you soak them in the soda ash for atleast an hour and squeeze them a couple times.

The scarves are even more beautiful and scrumptious in real life. Can't wait to dye them and order more.

Great potential--beautiful open border detail with a large flat area that I thought would work wonderfully for patterning. But for some reason the flat portion seemed to resist dying--my results were a little paler than I had hoped. Also the finished scarf needs to be ironed and is prone to pulled threads.

I love the look and feel of these scarves. The cotton thread is tightly spun or there is some resistant internal size so colors stamped printed or painted on may not penetrate evenly. I've dyed bleached washed and dyed again without the weave loosening or the scarf getting out of shape.
